. according to the "wall street journal," the obama administration has decided to turn down the volume. white house correspondent dan lothian live from washington on that part of the story for us this morning. dan, this report reveals that the administration has a game plan for showing military force, but it also says the white house is now dialing back. why? >> reporter: well, you're right. i mean, the report talks about sort of this playbook, if you will, that has specific steps that was signed off on by the administration. essentially, the u.s. flexing its muscles to try to turn down the temperature, not only in north korea but also in the region there. but this report pointing out that the steps that the u.s. has taken may have been more provocative, may have pushed and provoked this new leader, kim jong-un, more than intended, so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind that the u.s. presence has been increasing in the region in recent weeks starting back on march 8th when the u.s. flew b-52s as part of what was described as a routine mission. then about 2 1/2 weeks la

obama will say that congress and washington, d.c. should do what colorado has done. of course, they're very different. the legislature in colorado is democratic. where as in washington, d.c. this is obviously the house is republican and there are some questions about whether or not this gun control legislation will be able to get through the senate, because not every democrat is on board and certainly some republicans are not as well. so that's basically his pitch today. >> okay, so that's a political battle here. let's go to the front lines, so to speak. you spent time with agents on the front lines of the nation's battle with gunle hav le havgun. tell us what you learned. >> everybody talked about how enforce the laws on the books. that's something that the gun control people want, something the nra people want, they say just enforce the laws on the books and crime will be reduced. well, we went out with a team from the california attorney general's office. these law enforcement agents. and their job is to get guns from people who are not allowed to have them. but do have them. calif

of state under president obama and also a professor at george washington university. pj crowley, are we heading to any kind of nuclear conflict with north korea here? >> i really don't think so. the bottom line is, north korea is crazy but they're not suicidal. the kim family business, they want that to continue. the kim family reign, they want to continue. so they'll make a lot of noise. but i don't think that they're going to jump off the cliff. >> we're seeing that the u.s. has been sending a missile defense system to guam. clearly some military activity. at what point should the united states consider some kind of military attack, all be it from a defensist standpoint if we can't put up with these saber rattling threats any longer? >> we need to be careful there. the last time the united states went across the 38th parallel during the korean war it didn't work well for us. china didn't particularly like that action. i mean, really, if we thought they really were at the point where they were going to fire a missile at us and had some prospect of hitting the united states, obv

-looking attorney general in the country. i should point out mr. obama also called kamala harris brilliant, dedicated and tough. but the good-looking comment is the one getting all the attention. so joining me now, jodi kantor, washington correspondent with the "new york times" and woman who literally wrote the book on the first couple. also jonathan chait, a writer for "new york" magazine. jodi, are you as offended as everybody else seems to be the president called an attorney general the best-looking in the country? >> you know, i see why this is not a great story for the president, because kamala harris is a brainy, up and coming politician and it is a little strange that her national introduction to the political stage is a discussion about whether or not it was okay for the president to call her pretty or not. but that said, i would caution against making too much out of this. he was trying to pay her a compliment. it was kind of an awkward compliment. it was a faux pas but he was trying to be nice. i would say this is in a different category than the worst thing the president probabl

that's certainly a very much a view that is coming to the front here in washington over the last couple of days now. you know, you've seen the obama administration, you've seen the pentagon take a very public stance really challenge the north koreans verbally and then the north koreans have ratcheted up. and there's a lot of concern that everybody's just amping up, you know, and it's pretty much going to slip out of control if everybody doesn't take a deep breath and step back. today, the administration, the pentagon, very much doing that making the decision that they will ratchet back on their rhetoric. not necessarily pull back on any of these military moves, but ratchet back the public rhetoric and hope that they can cool down this whole thing. >> all right. barbara, thanks so much. barbara starr there. >>> get more perspective on what is happening in north korea, the abilities as well as intentions in ramping up this aggressive posturing, an expert from columbia university, thanks for joining us. what do you think of the pentagon and change in posture that they're going to be

. but, first, here's my take. it's a given that washington is broken. that the two parties seem incapable of coming together to get things done. but here is something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a signal accomplishment of his presidency, end the war on terror. for the first time since 9/11, an administration official sketched out a possible end point. jay johnson, the then general council for the pentagon said in a recent speech to the oxford union that as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will come a tipping point that so many of the leaders and operatives of allocate da and it's affiliate have been killed, captures such as al qaeda as we know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point he said our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest period that the united states has lived in such a situation. longer than the civil war, world war one or world war ii. it grants the president and the federal government extraordinary authority

? first off, they really do admire one another. they were great colleagues inside the obama administration. worked together on many, many issues. they were great colleagues in the u.s. senate. so i think that's genuine admiration and actual friendship that exists between them. i know that's hard to believe in washington but i think it's actually there. what happens now in the next couple of years in terms of who takes on whom, is anyone's guess. we just don't know at this point. vice president biden has certainly made sounds as though he intends to be a candidate. >> john, just quickly. when does hillary have to decide by? >> i guess by the time she has to file for her candidacy, so you know, she's got a couple of years yet. there's no automatic date here. no one -- there's no rule book for this. we've never actually been here before. >> a couple years for us to keep chewing it over. >> give you a lot to talk about here on the morning news. >> don baer great to see you this morning. >>> ahead on "starting point" the future of golf is here. bubba watson riding in just unbelie

a show of military might. dan lothian is live from washington. we're hearing this headline, dan, but at the same time we're also learning from the obama administration they have this so-called playbook for north korea. >> that's right. that was first reported by the "wall street journal" now independently confirmed by cnn that there was this playbook whereby the north korea did one thing, then the u.s. would react in a certain way. now there's this concern though, according to one official that perhaps they may have pushed north korea's leader too far. so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind over the last several weeks the u.s. really has been beefing up its presence in the region. twice last month the u.s. said b-52 bombers that fly over south korea as part of what we are told is a routine mission. there were navy ships sent to the region and then just yesterday, of course, we find out that this missile defense system will be sent to guam. a lot of concern because many u.s. officials really don't know kim jong-un. they believe that he is unpredictable. perhaps could
